A Quiet Walk

Shepherd me, O God, beyond my wants,

Where are you God?
I sit in darkness waiting ,
Searching,
Longing,
For you to appear.

My days are gray and
My nights are cold
What have I done,
To keep you so far from me?

I sit in darkness waiting.

      Thank you, it is a difficult place to be and I’m afraid to many people sit in the darkness. You and I know that the darkness will pass. My prayers are for those who can’t see beyond the darkness. thank you again.
